What is FDCPA?
An Overview of the FDCPA
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is a set of laws that
were enacted by Congress in 1978. These laws are meant to protect the
rights of consumers, as well as delineate what debt collectors cannot
do in the pursuit of a debt. Specifically, this act exists to ensure that
consumers are not being abused or harassed by the practices of unscrupulous
debt collectors. The act forbids collectors from:
Contacting debtors at odd/inconvenient hours (traditionally described as
before 8 am and after 9 pm)
Employing profane or abusive language when speaking with debtors
Contacting debtors at their place of work, after the debtor's employer
has expressly asked for this not to occur
Threatening debtors with lawsuits, if no such suit is actually intended
Telling debtors that they have committed a crime, or threatening them with
Contacting the debtor's friends or family to discuss their debt
